Media, Politics and Palestine with Anti-war Journalist Ryan Wentz
November 17 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
As Israel subjugates the Palestinian people and wages war, the corporate U.S. media reflexively blames “both sides” creating a false equivalence between the nuclear-armed state of Israel and the stateless Palestinian people.
With regards to Palestine, and broader issues of U.S. foreign policy, young and creative journalists are creating infrastructures to distribute information outside of the traditional, corporate media. On November 17 at 7 pm EDT, we are joined by journalist Ryan Wentz. Ryan (@queeralamode on Twitter) currently works for MintPress News and has a background in Palestine solidarity organizing and anti-war activism. Ryan previously organized with CODEPINK, and worked for Soapbox. Join us for an exciting discussion about traditional and alternative media, Palestine, and U.S. politics.
